Top 5 Events in 2013 that Pop’ed Our World: The Honorable Mentions

Honorable mention

Now, we couldn’t cover every event we wanted to in our top 5 countdown. Since there was so many great events to choose from, we decided give out some honorable mention awards because who doesn’t like knowing that they are just mediocre? (just kidding…well, in this sense anyways).

Kimye

So we are just going to get this out-of-the-way because I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of hearing about “Kimye”. The only reason that it’s getting an honorable mention is because…well it was rather quite shocking when Kanye West got together with Kim Kardashian back in 2012 (I know, it’s been that long) and the two just blew up the world in 2013. I mean, it was only a matter of time that these two got together. Kayne’s ego is as big as Kim’s ass so they balance each other out…literally.  They even made a baby…just in time for the Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s rating to go down and to face cancellation. Named North West (that baby will end up getting beat up 1) because of her name and 2) because of her parents), the child has garnered mass amounts of attention and they even showed that she was real when Kanye West was a guest on Kris Jenner’s “sadly” cancelled talk show that aired in Wyoming, California, Texas, New York and Idaho. Now the two are engaged and they are on the path to married bliss.

MileyCyrus

Like her BFFLs Kanye and Kim, it was a big year for our little Milers. Miley chopped off her hair, released her album “Bangerz”,rode a wrecking ball and twerked with a foam finger on a Robin Thicke dressed like beetlejuice. This was the year of Miley Cyrus and no one is complaining…that much. Miley has stolen the attention of  the world by her provocative way of her just being Miley, just ask her best friend Leslie (see what I did there?). Either way you look at it, Miley is on top of the world and 2014 looks like it’s going to Miley’s…well, you figure it out

arianagrande

While this was the year of Miley Cyrus, it was also the year of her next door neighbor Ariana Grande. The second coming of Mariah Carey broke out onto the scene with “The Way” and pretty much shocked the non-arianators with her presences that she creates when she sings. Then confirmed that’s she no one trick pony with the release of her album “Yours Truly” in September.  The 3-year in the making album quickly jumped to number one, making her the fifteenth artist and first female artist to have their first album debut atop of the charts since January 2010, when Ke$ha’s debut album “Animal”  was number one. Ariana has shown that she’s not just another teen star. 2014 looks like it will be an even bigger year for Ariana as she sets to drop her second album in the awkward period where it’s still winter but yet it’s going to spring (aka February-April).

Britney Spears

It has been speculated since the Queen of Pop Britney Spears finished her last tour in 2011 about her taking up residency in Las Vegas but it was confirmed until September when she announced in probably the hugest way possible-on Good Morning America in desert with over a thousands of Britney’s fans with Britney coming down on a helicopter. She also happen to announce that she was going to drop a new album, entitled “Britney Jean”, but the real focus was on Britney making history as she is the youngest person to take up residency in the Sin City.  While the album had more than stellar album sales and views, “Britney: Piece of Me” debuted on December 27 with stellar views as Britney showed the world that she still got it. While bringing the club feel to Planet Hollywood’s THE AXIS auditorium, Britney puts on a show like no either by reinventing her hits. Britney will be performing in Vegas until 2015  with a 100 show and the possibility to add more.

nsync

No words can describe this…so here’s the performance:

Yeah…..now you understand why.

Ray-J…well, he hit it first

banner pop

So by now, you’ve must have heard the fact that Ray J,Kim Kardashian’s ex and the little bro of Brandy, recently did a song about her called “I hit it first” (wonderful title right? I heard Chris Brown thought of it but gave to him) and the single cover is a pixelated photo of the Kardashian in a bikini (Ray J, you are one classy and clever fellow).  While the Kim/Kanye camp haven’t commented on this, aka Kris Jenner hasn’t sent out the Kardashian Mafia, it’s gotta some major publicity. It’s been like a week since the single has dropped and while we here at the Pop Project refuse to review it because we felt dirty like Xtina, we will comment on it. So here is the first ever Pop Project Dissection of Ray J’s newest single “I hit it first”.

So let’s start with the song title and cover because it’s going to be the most fun! So as I stated before, the title is “I hit it first”. The title of this song is basically Ray J stating to the world that “he had sex with Kim”. I pretty sure that the world knows about the fact that Ray J had sex with Kim because of the sex tape that they did because that tape is the main reason we see Kim and her family on our television screens each and everyday. So there is no need, or want for us, to be reminded that he had sex with Kim first because we thank him every time we see her (by thank, I mean want to harm). And let’s be real people, Kim probably wasn’t even a virgin when she and Ray J had sex because she lived through the 90s and everyone know the only thing virginal about the 90s was “Full House” and that was only on for half of it. So Ray J, you in fact didn’t “hit it” first but rather probably second. Anyways, this is what the cover of the single is and the un-pixelated photo:

I don’t know who in the hell Ray J was trying to fool with this cover but it didn’t work (especially in this day and age). You might as well have just posted the DVD cover of the sex tape because that would have worked better than this pixelated cover because it’s so hard to unpixelate something. You are just asking for trouble when you do this, especially with the Kardashians! They will cut a bitch and not think twice about it. So yeah, so far Ray J, you just look like an asshole and Kim looks like the victim and We,the people, feel bad for her (there’s a first time for everything).

Now, it’s time to go over the lyrics because there isn’t a song without lyrics. Sadly, at the time of this post-there wasn’t any lyrics posted 🙁 So instead, here is the song. Listen to it. I’m sorry for wasting your time with this song:

Now that you listened to it….yeah, it’s pretty obvious that Ray J is still not over Kim. This song is basically him telling his “bros” about his accomplishments (Dude, they probably already know. The sex tape has been out for years)

According this site, Ray J said that it wasn’t about Kimmie K. he stated:

”It’s a song, it’s not about that. They just gotta keep it on the surface. I’m not trying to create no war, it’s all love; we’re doing music.”

Hmmm well Ray J, if it wasn’t about Kim Kardashian then you shouldn’t have put her on your single cover pixelated, made a line in the song that says “She might move on to rappers and ballplayers/But we all know I hit it first” and then sang “If you were to come back to me, girl/We’ll make another movie”. That to me sounds like all stuff Kim Kardashian has done unless she has a cloned.

So yeah, That’s pretty much it. Ray J’s song makes him look like a scumbag and we all feel bad for a Kardashian. The world will be ending.
